Default Just bought a Custom X

Hope I like it but I got it in the US and a friend is flying over with it! What can I expect on a much stiffer board than my guru?

Be prepared for a very fast board. I hope you are good enough to handle fast and stiff boards. This means you need some serious edge to edge skills. If you are good enough, the Custom X handles like a beast and launches off kickers like you wouldn't believe.

I started snowboarding this season but I have been up 16 times already. I can hit blacks/reds (US blues) without issue and I can go a day with one fall (a day being 6 hours on the snow not at the bar). I like carving and have avoided the parks although I enjoy jumps. I can hit off piste (back country) powder and have no trouble with carving. I should be able to handle this thing right?

You should be fine but it is a great ride. I have one from two years ago and love it. Very fast.

Awesome! I'm pretty stoked as the Guru was a bit too flexible for some of the carving I've been doing.

So I got my board yesterday and can't wait to go up. I hot waxed it last night and now I just need to take a day off from work or wait till the weekend. It sucks though as today is the sunniest day this year ;-(

I thought I would not like the design at all but I have to say the top of the board is amazing. The build quality seems to be very high and I was able to fit my 3D bindings to it no problem.

There is one issue though. On Burton's website the bottom looks like this:



And mine looks like this:



Any thoughts as to why there are different graphics? I prefer the black base as I can see my wax job better but I am confused as to why it is different.

If you get much powder, be prepared to work... a lot. That mother is STIFF. I just demoed the Custom X yesterday on powder/bumps/drifts. It's a beast- sliced right through everything, so well that my boots got buried and caused crashes when they suddenly stopped. Took a lot of energy to get cranked around before the next mess. On hardpack/ice/pipe I'll bet it really shines.
